Slaying the Badger
If you have not read it, Slaying the Badger is the story of the battle between Greg LeMond and Bernard Hinault in the 1986 Tour de France. I read it on the Kindle Fire HD. Excellent behind the scenes look into, perhaps, the greatest rivalry in the history of the Tour.
The documentary is on Netflix now.
Nice book, but "the greatest rivalry in the history of the Tour? Hardly. What about Anquetil/Poulidor, Coppi/Bartali, Merckx/Ocana? leMond and Hinault were really only in competition with each other for that one race.

Watched it on 'Flix. I enjoyed it. Good documentary. I don't know him personally, but the film painted "the Badger" as quite a jerk.
